Errata for ArcGIS Desktop 9.2This document provides errata for people who want to perform the exercises in Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop, Second Edition using ArcGIS Desktop version 9.2 software. The errata include changes to the user interface and changes to exercise instructions. A few exercises have been replaced in their entirety because software changes necessitated extensive modifications to exercise steps or workflows.

Exercise 11bErrata for ArcGIS 9.2 Creating graphsThe ArcGIS Graph Wizard lets you create many different kinds of graphs, including column, pie, area, and scatter graphs. You can set properties for such elements as titles, axes, and graph markers (the bars in a bar graph, for instance). Graphs can be saved with a map document or as files with a .grf extension that can be added to any map document. Exercise 11b You have dissolved the forest stands into lease areas and summed their harvestable values. In this exercise, youll present the values in a graph and add the graph to a map layout. 1 Start ArcMap. In the ArcMap dialog, click the option to use an existing map. In the list of existing maps, double-click Browse for maps. (If ArcMap is already running, click the File menu and click Open.) Navigate to C:\GTKArcGIS\Chapter11. Click ex11b.mxd and click Open.

The map shows the lease areas you created in the previous exercise.

Exercise 11bThe graph displays in a window that floats on the application window. The graph makes it easy to compare the lease area values. Lease F, the most valuable, is worth about 1.5 billion dollars. Note: If you resize the graph window, values displayed along the left axis may change.

Youll add the graph to the map layout. 11 Right-click on the graph title bar. On the context menu, click Add to Layout. ArcMap switches to layout view. 12 Close the graph window.
